Call for Participation

We solicit papers, posters, videos, artistic works, and contest entries for InfoVis 2007. InfoVis is the primary meeting in the field of information visualization. This year InfoVis has graduated from a symposium to a full conference.

Join us Sunday, October 28, through Tuesday, October 30, 2007, in conjunction with the IEEE Visualization 2007 Conference and IEEE VAST 2007 Symposium in Sacramento, California.

Computer-based information visualization centers around helping people explore or explain data through interactive software that exploits the capabilities of the human perceptual system. A key challenge in information visualization is designing a cognitively useful spatial mapping of a dataset that is not inherently spatial and accompanying the mapping by interaction techniques that allow people to intuitively explore the dataset. Information visualization draws on the intellectual history of several traditions, including computer graphics, human-computer interaction, cognitive psychology, semiotics, graphic design, statistical graphics, cartography, and art. The synthesis of relevant ideas from these fields with new methodologies and techniques made possible by interactive computation are critical for helping people keep pace with the torrents of data confronting them.
